The problem exist when the car goes uphill regardless of fuel demand. this sounds more like a transmission problem, check ur fluid if necessary have changed, have ur transmission filter system checked.if it were in the fuel system u would expirence this problem anytime u put fuel demands on the motor. but as u state it happens when ur going uphill which is the transmission job

BMW 530i 2001 engine struggles under load

If a coil was bad, it would be missing or misfiring. Could be a clogged filter or a weak fuel pump. To check have the fuel pressure tested. If pressure is good, a tune-up might help.

What are the signs of a bad fuel filter on a 2001 buick century

Hey Keith, you have all the signs of a blocked/restricted fuel filer. Will also struggle, especially going up hills if there is a missfire. Missfire will usually turn on engine light but sometimes not. If light is on and you have the system scanned it will tell you which cylinder to check. Mis fire codes usually plug,coil, or coil pack. I would try filter first if never changed.

Losing power going over hill

well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.
